Organised by the South African high commission on Wednesday evening, members of motorcycle group Free Soul Riders (FSR) rode from the high commission's office in Vasant Vihar area to Raj Ghat,...

One mans peace activist is another mans terrorist  . Mandela  and his former wife have questions to answer  , but  motorcycle forums are  not the place for these kind of politics . The only type of politics we should be aware of are the dodgey laws sent to plague us from Euroland &  some ill advised one"s from our own government . We have enough  trouble keeping our eye on the ball here without being sidetracked in somebody else"s problems .

Africa

I see nothing wrong with this article being here, it is about bikes and in africa.

 

Just a point we have to ask in relation to what has already been said by the other two posters.

 

Yes he may well have been a terrorist, but you have to ask why he was put in that position in the first place, I wonder how many people in the UK would have been terrorists if the germans had taken the UK during ww2.

 

Or how many people in the UK would feel ok about it if lets say idi armin or whatever his name was, came to the Uk and suddenly decided all white people were sub humans that could be treated worse than dogs.

 

Would whites that faught running battles in the streets against this type of racist be freedom fighters on a just cause or terrorists fighting against what armins people would consider their right to do.

 

You may wish to consider people like neson mandela as a terrorist but you really need to ask why, and you need to ask what did he do.

 

Did he get people to strap bombs on themselves? no, did he go around shooting innocent people? not as far as i'm aware, did he well the list goes on.

 

But let's get it right ask why he did what he did and to whom he did it and then if the answers are not right we can proclaim him as a bady.

This guy used to creep up to the houses of farmers in the middle of the night, pour petrol all over them, and burn them (men, women, and children) ALIVE!

They should have strung him up, then he would have been forgotten about with thousands of other muderers.

Hero? No.

Sadistic animal? Yes.

I put this article in, because I believe in freedom and reconciliation , It was not meant to be political, what was done by both sides of the apatite equation were horrific, but the country is tyring to put that behind them, they want to move forward in this world, I am sorry that that might of offended some, but I assumed that this was showing the biking community in south Africa in a good light, One mans terrorist is an others freedom fighter, there are many problems in this world but without freedom and reconciliation it will be a lot worse.
